9. What do I do with scratches on the glass ceramic? 

Superficial scratches on cooking surfaces can occur during daily handling. Since the surface of the cooking fields is usually black without a pattern, the scratches on these - in contrast to cooking areas with decorative printing - are more noticeable. These scratches can not be undone. They are common usage traces which do not impair the operability of the cooking field. They are not covered by the guarantee. To avoid these scratches, immediately remove spilled spices, such as salt, check the bottom of your pots and pans for burrs or stains, do not push them on the hob, but lift them, clean the hob always immediately after use. Care products for the glass ceramic cooking field can be found in our webshop purchase. 

10. There is a crack in my frameless cooking area. Is that normal? 

Cooking fields with frames and frameless variants have injection-molded gaskets through the factory. If the hob is installed, the seal with the frame is automatically and better covered. In the case of a frameless cooking field, a minimal gap always remains, since the material of the seal is applied. In both cases, the cooking field is still somewhat downward during use. The seal is thereby compressed. In order to prevent the seal from protruding below the cooking field after a certain period of use, a minimum gap must be maintained during assembly. There is no error. The device corresponds to the current state of the art. 

11. Duration of the warm-up time at the various cooking stages

The cooking zone is set to full capacity for a short time with the anchoring system. After a predetermined time has elapsed, the cooking zone automatically returns to the previously selected stage. This setting allows high-level boil-up and low-level booting, without having to manually reset the stage. The duration of the warm-up time depends on the stage selected for the fortune.

12. Cooking field beeps and turns off by itself, for example when water overcooks or two keys are touched at the same time. Why?  

If a button on the hob is touched and the setting is changed, the device always outputs an acoustic signal. This is especially true when the hob is switched on or off. The following situations in which the hob switches off unintentionally are conceivable and do not represent a defect on the appliance:  

  • Water boils over and runs over the control panel: The cooking hob is equipped with a capacitive switch that responds to touch. In this case, the switch can not distinguish whether this contact has been made, for example, by over-boiled water, the finger or a cleaning sponge. 
  • Two sensor surfaces are touched at the same time, for example by placing the flat hand on the control panel. If the hob is switched off for no obvious reason, we recommend that you have this checked by our factory service. Check the temperature here

In such dark areas, the internal wiring area of ​​the radiant heater (only applies to cooking zones with radiant heating). At this point too, heat is transferred to the pot. A remedy is not possible. The dark spot is technically and does not represent a defect in the appliance. The usability of the cooking field is not restricted.
